About Fame, A Personal Life, and Responsibility by Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan

A very sensible approach to tackling such issues by brother nouman. MashaAllah

Al Muqarraboon

Bismillah walahmdulillah

A well-written, honest piece about what it’s like to have spotlight, and how to keep a clear perspective through all of it. I really appreciated this article. I think anyone who has had a taste of fame and has seen the effects it had on them will be able to relate. It’s also for those of us who don’t know how to find a balance in the way we look at people (all good or all bad). I’ve personally experienced both of these things. I won’t say more; the article will speak to everyone differently. Check it out:

    Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu,

    Allahumma baarik, nice blog here! However, I would like to remind myself first, then you my sister and anyone who reads this, the statement of Al Imaam Muhammad Ibn Sereen who said “This knowledge is a matter of deen, so be careful who you take your deen from.” This individual – Nouman Ali Khan – is not someone from whom knowledge should be taken, he belittles importance given to aqeedah in learning while aqeedah is the fundamental upon which other pillars of Islaam are built.

    He also teaches the book of Ali Sabooni at his institute and this book has many grievous errors within it. Shaykh Bakr Abu Zayd (rahimahullah) said about the book: ” The title Safwat al-Tafaaseer (“The Best of Tafseers”) is deceiving and confusing. How can it be described as the best when it mixes good and bad, when it mixes the tafseers of the Salafis Ibn Jareer and Ibn Katheer with the tasfeers of the Mu’tazili al-Zamakhshari, the Raafidis al-Radiy and al-Tubrusi, the Ash’ari al-Raazi and the fanatical Ash’ari grave-worshipper al-Saawi and others? Especially when this mixing is done by one who does not know what he is doing and is like one who tries to climb a wall without a ladder. Al-Rudood, p. 311.

    From this perspective alone, I advise you, seeking the Face of Allah alone to protect your deen and be careful from whom you take your deen.

    BaarakAllah feeki wa zaadakillahu min kulli khayr.
